ICCCAD and LSE along with other partners have initiated a dialogue to enhance climate resilience through research collaboration between Bangladesh and the UK, with universities in both countries as a central partner for enhancing long-term capacity.

The UK’s Presidency in COP26 and Bangladesh’s Leadership role in climate change adaptation and also its chairmanship of the climate-vulnerable forum(CVF) staged the backdrop to facilitate a transdisciplinary and equitable collaboration among researchers in Bangladesh and the UK to address climate change impacts and reduce poverty.

The dialogue at this Roundtable discussion “Tackling Climate Emergency through UK-BANGLADESH Collaboration on Research” was part of over 70+ event of London Climate Action Week 2020 and it set the perfect opportunity to take forward the discussion of climate research and collaboration between the countries
